A powerful model for linking student learning to the world

How would classrooms be different if curriculum could be qualitatively differentiated so that learners not only accumulate information, but also experience the power of knowledge? The empirically based Parallel Curriculum Model shows teachers how to create a meaningful, emotive, and engaging curriculum that helps children apply what they learn to their lives. Each chapter offers specific unit and lesson plans created by master elementary teachers that can be put into practice immediately. Included are field-tested and standards-based strategies that:

Focus on parallel themes in literacy, science, mathematics, and social studies

Help students deepen knowledge, think metaphorically, solve problems, and identify with subject matter

Challenge all learners according to their interests and abilities

Create authentic, joyful, and active student involvement

All students should have the opportunity to benefit from multi-faceted learning experiences and this inspiring book gives educators the methods to make it happen. The text is rich with vignettes, visuals, samples, reproducibles, and assessment tools. The possibilities are unlimited!
